The rise of shared workspaces has revolutionised the way we approach work. Yet, as the popularity of shared workspaces soars, it brings with it a unique set of challenges, particularly when it comes to organisation and storage. With multiple individuals sharing the same space, maintaining order and efficiency can prove to be an uphill battle.
In this blog, we will explore creative storage solutions tailored specifically for shared workspaces. These innovative ideas will help you maximise space, promote organisation, and create a harmonious environment that fosters productivity and collaboration.
1. Vertical Space Utilisation
When floor space is limited, going vertical is the way to go. Vertical storage solutions make use of wall space to keep items organised and easily accessible. Remember, the key to an organised and harmonious shared workspace lies in thoughtful planning and collaboration. Some great vertical storage solutions include:
The Lin Shelving system offers the flexibility of being used either as a standalone unit or wall-mounted, thanks to its modular construction. It boasts a sturdy metal body, complemented by side panels and a choice of lacquered, laminated, or naturally coated tops. Its versatility shines through with the availability of various heights and volumes, making it an excellent option to maximise wall space in a shared workspace.
The Polka shelving system features elegant aluminium profiles that give it a distinctive appearance and is securely anchored to the floor and ceiling or wall. This highly versatile shelving system is fully customisable, offering the option to incorporate natural wood veneer drawer units and shelves in any desired quantity.
2. Multi-Functional Furniture
Embrace furniture that serves more than one purpose to make the most of a shared workspace. Take the Nanda Pedestal, for example, which can double up as a seat thanks to the seating cushion added to its top. This versatility makes it a valuable addition to any shared workspace, where space optimisation and adaptability are key.
In addition to multifunctional furniture, consider incorporating storage solutions that also integrate plants into the shared workspace. Look for desks or shelving units with built-in planters or designated spaces for small potted plants, such as the Olmstead Planter, which brings a perfect fusion of form and function.
3. Under Desk Storage
Underdesk storage is a hidden gem in the realm of workspace organisation. Often overlooked, this space beneath the desk holds untapped potential for enhancing efficiency and tidiness.
Consider the following under desk storage solutions when designing your workspace:
The Oscar drawer unit's exquisite teak wood, intricate hand-carved elements, and convenient wheels allow it to function as a standalone furniture item. Additionally, it seamlessly complements the open Oscar desk, providing additional storage space when placed beneath it.
The Billy Drawer Unit unit is designed with three soft-closing drawers and convenient wheels, ensuring effortless access to your essentials. Whether used on its own or positioned under a desk, this piece stands as a must-have for any office environment.
4. Personal Lockers or Cubbies
Privacy is vital in shared workspaces, especially when it comes to personal belongings. Providing lockers or cubbies to each user allows them to store their belongings securely and maintain a clutter-free environment.
A prime example of a smart and sophisticated storage solution is Haiken’s Brunel Smart Locker System, Brunel stands as one of the smartest storage solutions in the market, distinguished by being the only locker solution with a banking license. This remarkable feature makes Brunel the perfect choice not only for offices but also for public changing rooms, banks, healthcare institutions, shopping malls, and educational facilities.
